Style Notes: Camille Rowe-Pourcheresse
Edited by Karla Martinez and Vanessa Lawrence The Paris-born Camille Rowe-Pourcheresse seems to be adjusting to her relatively new Manhattan life with ease. The model and new face of Chloé’s fall fragrance campaign has already racked up some local dives (The Bowery Hotel and Tartinery) and found her style groove (Acne jeans by day, Sixties-esque mini dresses at night). Here, our September It Girl reveals where she satisfies her croissant-cravings, her favorite namesake flats and her must-stops for when she leaves New York.
Daily uniform: During the day I dress pretty casually: Acne jeans, men’s t-shirts or sweaters, I love buttoned up white shirts, paired with Martin Margiela boots or Repetto shoes. I have a thing for overalls as well.
Greatest hits: I have a vintage fur coat that looks exactly like Margot Tenenbaum which I absolutely love. I recently purchased these amazing tight black Chanel boots that look very 60s, so cute. I have a few kimonos that I like to wear as dresses in the evening, there is one in particular that I found in a vintage store in Montauk that’s a real hit. Finally my Burberry leather jacket because it’s a classic.
Preferred footwear: I hardly ever wear heels during the day unless I need to go to castings. Margiela makes the best boots. In the evening I’ll go for heels—I like them colorful. I also love to wear my dirty low-rise white Converse sneakers with a pretty fancy dress, though.
Finishing touches: I hardly wear jewelry except for two gold hoops in my left ear and the Chanel Camelia ring that I never take off. I finish my outfits with a spray of perfume—I alternate between Rose Noir from Byredo and Chloé.
Nighttime look: It depends on my mood: I usually go pretty 60s inspired. I love ridiculously short dresses with little ballet pumps (my favorites are from Repetto and are called Camille! with a tiny little heel). I love kimonos as well, and in the summer I love wearing white with very colorful heels and red lipstick. If I’m planning on dancing, though, I need to wear flats.
Best recent discovery: I just moved to NYC and I’ve been missing my French croissants. A friend just introduced me to Ceci-Cela bakery. Their pastries are Paris worthy! Another recent discovery is Netflix, they have all my favorite French films and great documentaries.
Favorite stores: I love La Hune bookstore in Paris for French books. The Dries van Noten store in Paris is beautiful and I love their clothes. Opening Ceremony always has a great selection. Kisan concept store in Soho is great as well, they have great books and DVDs and I recently bought the cutest pillows for my new apt.
Style pet peeve: Too tight…
Style icons: Marianne Faithful, Bonnie Parker, Kate Moss.
Last purchase: A vintage 1970s bikini for my summer in Corsica and Marni boots with a big velvet bow on top.
Lusting after: Celine’s fall collection, holidays…
Favorite haunts: In NYC: Bowery Hotel for their ginger drink; Tartinery in Nolita is my cantine, I go there almost every single day. They have charming French owners and delicious desserts. In Paris: “Marche des enfants rouges” on rue de Bretagne is a great world food market. “Les deux amis” on rue Oberkampf has the best food and wine! Deyrolles’ I love going there because I collect butterflies, it’s like a museum. In London, Fat Faced Cat is one of my favorite vintage stores, it’s my first stop whenever I’m there.
